INSURANCE FOR THE ASBESTOS INDUSTRY

30 years' experience in providing Asbestos Insurance, General Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurances for asbestos-risk industries.

Specialist asbestos insurance brokers within the company provide risk and insurance solutions to a number of leading companies in the asbestos abatement sector. We have an in-depth knowledge of the specific risk exposures, the health and safety requirements as well as the long tail nature of the potential trade related asbestos insurance claims.

Although there is a limited appetite within the insurance market for the asbestos trade sector, we have access to all of the specialist insurers who are able to offer cover. We can offer competitive rates which can be further discounted for companies who are members of the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) and members of the Asbestos Control and Abatement Division (ACAD).

Bespoke asbestos insurance is available for the following trades:

  • Air monitoring specialists
  • Asbestos removal contractors
  • Building trades with asbestos exposure concerns
  • Laboratories
  • Labour hirers
  • Surveyors and consultants

General Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurances are the areas where correct policy arrangement is essential. With the policy cover available in the market varying considerably, we believe the long term potential for insurance claims surrounding asbestos, require special attention. The market generally writes the pollution risk on a ‘claims made` basis, although the triggers and scope of cover vary. It is therefore vital that covers are dovetailed when moving insurers in order to avoid potential gaps in cover appearing within the insurance programme.
